The White Mountain School seeks a Director of Student Inquiry and Research to begin duties on August 15, 2016. This is a new position in support of our institutional focus on Authentic Inquiry – learning driven by questions that truly matter to students.
The Director of Student Inquiry and Research will support students in their inquiry and research through our Research Seminar course, by supporting faculty advisors of independent projects, and by working with teachers of all disciplines as their students engage in inquiry. This position is ideal for a librarian who wants to work more directly with students and build a flagship program, or for a creative, visionary academic leader with a belief in the importance of student inquiry. As part of the position, the Director will engage in the life of the school, including serving as an advisor to students and being involved in afternoon activities and residential life. We’re proud of our increasingly diverse student body, and encourage candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups in librarianship and education to apply.
